Guns across America

Reconciling Gun Rules and Rights

Robert Spitzer

  • A highly readable and accessible book that deals with an incendiary topic in a non-polemical way
  • Brings together previously unpublished data on historical gun laws in America
  • Addresses such timely issues as the 'stand your ground' controversy, the 'right of rebellion,' the debate over the regulation of assault weapons, and the fundamental question of whether the government does or should possess a monopoly over the use of force
